A Little Help Would Be Nice…..

Screen Shot 06-21-17 at 03.13 PM 001 This is how Buddy looked when he came slinking over to me whimpering that he needed a bit of help: he’d somehow gotten a plastic bag stuck on his head! My guess is that he’d been rooting around in the garbage again and the bag that the chicken burgers was in was just a little too appealing and too tempting to resist and he stuck his head in and then couldn’t get the bag off, so I, in my typical fashion, burst out laughing, snapped a photo just for laughs(always thinking of my blogging readers; you’re welcome), and then helped him out. He was fine though, it was never on tight and had lots of air, but it was the funniest thing ever. That dog really cracks me up. He’s just so funny.
